This Schroeckenfux grass scythe blade is a useful compromise blade, i.e. one with which you can do some trimming work and also mow larger open areas of grass. In a constricted area, you won’t be able to achieve as neat a job as if you chose a shorter blade, and in large open areas, you won’t be able to mow as efficiently, but if you have both jobs to do, and only want to purchase one blade, this is a good middle-of-the-road blade.
The Schroeckenfux grass scythe blades that we sell are well suited to the high silicon content of the Australian native grasses as well as the softer imported grasses. We have asked for a stone tip to be added to all of our grass blades so that when scything properly, i.e. in an arc with the blade slicing through the grass, if your grass is hiding a rock, a bit of wire or a star picket, you’ll hit the obstacle with the stone tip and thus better protect your blade.
